New Jersey In The News

Despite its reputation, New Jersey is a beautiful state.  It deserves better leadership than it has.  Today’s New York Post has a summary of the arrests yesterday involving a major scandal in the state of New Jersey.  According to the article:

“Separate federal probes targeting rogue rabbis in Brooklyn and corrupt public officials in New Jersey led to the arrests yesterday of 44 people, including three mayors and five religious leaders.”

The scandal included stealing money from banks in a check-writing scam, money laundering, and skimming the top off of charitable contribution.   At one point, the sale of a kidney was involved.  The arrests yesterday were the result of three years of work by federal authorities.  Hopefully, the fallout from these arrests will be a move toward cleaner politics in the Garden State.
